NATO might kill some of their own officers to provoke a war in Ukraine

Summary

Bearing in mind that Americans are performing inspections at the Ukrainian front-line more and more often, a set-up is very much likely, where someone from a Nato delegation is killed. That would be organised as a “involvement of a third party” or just a shooting, where the blame will be put on the home-guard of Donbas. After all, would Pentagon really hesitate to kill a colonel or diplomat or two in order to instigate a war?

The well-oiled machinery of Western propaganda would spring into action immediately and blame the home-guard of Donbas or directly on Russia. Then the cannons will start talking. It’s a hard-working system, applied many times; for instance in former Yugoslavia. The concept of setting up the death of NATO representatives is, according to rumours from the Ukrainian ministry of defence, already discussed.

Disproof

A conspiracy theory, presented without any evidence. Claims on provocations and "false flag operations", performed or planned, is a frequent manoeuvre by pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets.

Nearly a third of Georgian tourism is Russian [lets send this to arab speaking colleague – RM]

Last year, a record number of Russian tourists arrived in Georgia, reaching more than 1.4 million, which is almost a third of the total “tourist movement” in Georgia. 

Disproof

In 2018 1.4 million Russian tourists arrived in Georgia. The total number of  tourists was 7.2 million, which means that Russian tourist' arrivals stand at about 19.4 percent (or just under a fifth).

The disinformation message  is  aimed at inflating the economic impact of Russia's suspension of flights to Georgia following the recent anti-Russian unrest in Tbilisi. 

US behind South America power failure

US cyber attacks are the reason behind wide-scale power cuts in three South American countries as training for hitting Russia’s energy infrastructure.

Disproof

This claim is supported by no evidence. Whereas a massive power outage has indeed taken place in several Latin American countries, the reason behind it is yet to be established. The Argentinian president Mauricio Macri promised in a tweet published on June 16 that the case will be thoroughly investigated.

The Guardian reported that Argentina’s energy secretariat blamed the blackout on a failure in the transmission of electricity from the Yacyretá hydroelectric dam on the Paraná River. He also added that the reason for the breakdown was not immediately clear.

The protests in Hong Kong are US sponsored

Hong Kong’s opposition has already long been exposed as US-sponsored. The protests in Hong Kong are organized to delay the inevitable end to the West’s “primacy” over Asia and in particular its attempts to dominate China.  In the process, these protests will continue to expose Washington’s methods of fueling political subversion and the Western media’s role in deceitfully promoting and defending it – compromising similar operations being carried out elsewhere across Asia-Pacific and around the world. US Colour Revolution Masquerades as “Popular Opposition”.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative casting civil uprisings in other states as US-funded "colour revolutions", also present in the case of Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus, Venezuela. Consistent with multiple pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the US and its global role.
